I have another fabulous gardening book for you all today. “The Layered Garden” by David L. Culp is a key ingredient in my collection, one that every gardener needs. I am often an advocate for breaking the rules when it comes to gardening, but layers are to gardening what salt is to cooking–add a little bit here and there and, just like that, everything looks better. I could not possibly offer you better proof than the photos in this book.
I can sum up the importance of creating layers in just three words: layers equal texture.
I would encourage all you lovely gardeners to check out this book for more incredible photos that further prove my layer theory, which is basically that you need them in your garden. End of story.
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone! There is certainly a lot to celebrate! And speaking of layers, how about making dear ol’ dad his favorite cake? You know, for Father’s Day, which just so happens to be the FIRST DAY OF SUMMER too! Enjoy!
